Apple, Cisco, Google, SF Weekly To Attend SanFran MusicTech Summit Feb 25

Posted By on Fri, Jan 25, 2008 at 6:51 AM

We maintain that two of the best things about SF involve the music we get, and all the tech we love. Hence, anyone who's in the know should drop by, The SanFran MusicTech Summit at the Hotel Kabuki, February 25th. All the cool kids will be there like reps from Apple, Google, Pandora, SF Weekly (heh-heh), Rolling Stone and the EFF. We'll be chopping it up all serious-like regarding: P2P tech, copyrights, streaming, iPods, and uh ... other cool conference-style stuff. Deadline for cheap, early-bird registration is today, Friday at Do it. Or you'll make Jesus cry. More info after the jump. -ASD Staff Report

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
